Born in Germany, Tessy Plastics founder Henry Beck began his toolmaker apprenticeship at the age of 14. After graduating in 1953, he continued with the same company for another two years, when in 1955, eager to experience the world, Henry accepted an assignment in Brazil teaching customers how to operate tool-making machines. After 2 years in Brazil, Henry went to work for the largest import company in the U.S. as a service engineer, installing and teaching at companies, including NASA, for 20 years.
In 1968, Henry started the Beck Machinery Corp. in Skaneateles, NY, supplying well known company Welch Allyn with Swiss made automatic screw machines. Based on a relationship of confidence and trust, Welch Allyn encouraged Henry to start an injection molding company.
Tessy Plastics was founded in 1973 in a single small location in Elbridge, New York and has since grown into a global contract manufacturer with locations in Central New York, Virginia and China with a collective production footprint of over 1.2 million square feet.
Opening in 1997, Tessy Plastics, LLC was established in Lynchburg, Va. to support an international telecom corporation located less than a half mile away. Since then, TPS Lynchburg has expanded into molding for a diverse range of medical, consumer goods, personal care, automotive, military, industrial and aerospace customers.
In 2022 Tessy Plastics, LLC became Total Plastic Solutions, LLC. Still family owned and led by Henry’s son Ken Beck, TPS Plastics operates the same way since the beginning – with a relentless focus on quality, constantly looking to find smarter and more cost effective processes that add value. Privately held and answering only to our customers and ourselves, we invest in the latest technologies and top engineering talent in order to move our business and our customers forward.
